BRMC achieves platinum level in Donate Life Hospital Challenge

Posted on: 11/20/2017

The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania, the Center for Organ Recovery and Education, Gift of Life Donor Program and Pennsylvania Department of Health recognized Bradford Regional Medical Center, member of Upper Allegheny Health System and a Kaleida Health facility, for its work to promote organ donation.


BRMC earned a platinum ranking in the 2017 Pennsylvania Donate Life Hospital Challenge which encourages hospitals in the state to increase organ donation awareness and designations within their hospital and community. Hospitals are acknowledged for their efforts with titanium, platinum, gold, silver and bronze level recognitions.


“This was a remarkable year for hospital participation in the Donate Life Hospital Challenge,” said Andy Carter, HAP president and chief executive officer. “Pennsylvania’s hospital community knows that these donations help save lives and heal families. We commend participating hospitals for all they do to encourage Pennsylvanians to become organ donors, and thank the Department of Health, CORE, and Gift of Life for their ongoing partnership with this project.”
Nearly 100 hospitals and health systems participated across the state in the friendly competition that provides hope to the nearly 8,000 patients waiting on life saving organ transplants in Pennsylvania.

Upper Allegheny Health System is the parent company of Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital, member of Kaleida Health. An integration of two prominent community hospitals in Southwestern New York state and Northwestern Pennsylvania, Upper Allegheny Health System’s goal is the enhancement of each hospital’s mission of care and service to their respective communities with the common goal of improving care, enhancing clinical programs and providing best-in-class service for various health needs.


HAP is a statewide membership services organization that advocates for nearly 240 Pennsylvania acute and specialty care, primary care, subacute care, long-term care, home health, and hospice providers, as well as the patients and communities they serve.
